weapons to terrorists, like has the law, -- like hezbollah, which might be used against israel. finally, we continue consultation on iran. we agree that a nuclear armed iran would be a threat to the and israel.he world we agree on our goal -- we do not have a policy of containment when it comes to a nuclear iraq. our policy is to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. we prefer to resolve this diplomatically. there is still time to do so. must understand the need to meet their international obligations. international community will increase the pressure on the iranian government. the united states will continue to work closely with israel on steps. i will repeat -- all options are on the table. we will do what is necessary to prevent iran from getting those weapons. meeting these challenges will not be easy. it will demand is encourage and resolve that those had who preceded us. tribute to the soldiers and leaders who had laid down their lives for israel. -- of them was in a letter, he wrote, don't forget justice and resolution is on our side. that is a great deal. you and your f
and love and raise families. that's why every country that values justice should call hezbollah what it truly is, a errorist organization. because the world cannot tolerate an organization that murders innocent civilians, stock pilse rockets to shoot at cities and support it is massacre of men and women and children in syria right now. the fact that hezbollah's allies, the asad regime has stockpiled chemical weapons only heightens the urgency. we will continue to cooperate closely to guard against that danger. i've made it clear to alassad and all who follow his orders we will not tolerate the use of chemical weapons against the southeastern people or the transfer of those weapons. the world is watching. e will hold you accountable. the syrian people have the right to be freed from the grips of a dit takor who would rather kill his own people than relinquish power. assad must go so the serious future can begin. because true stability in syria begins upon establishing a government that is responsible to its people. one that protects all communities within its borders while making peac
israeli homes devastated by hezbollah rockets. i've stood and met with children who simply want to grow up free from fear and flying in today i saw again how israel's security can be measured in mere miles and minutes. as president, i therefore made it clear america's commitment to the security of the state of israel is a solemn obligation. and the security of israel is nonnegotiable. today our military and intelligence personnel cooperate more closely than ever before. we conduct more joint exercises and training than ever before. we're providing more security assistance and advanced technology to israel than ever before. that includes more support for the missile defenses, like iron dome, which i saw today and which saves so many israeli lives. in short, and i don't think this is just my opinion, i think bebe, you share this, america's support for israel's security is unprecedented, and the alliance between our nations has never been stronger. that's the sturdy foundation we built on today as we addressed a range of shared challenges. as part of our long-term commitment to israel's secur
and the opposition. it is a regional war by proxy. you have rapp and iraq and hezbollah supporting him. on the other hand you have turkey and qatar. not only a regional war by proxy. you have russia and the united states. i would argue that president barack obama has been reluctant to intervene directly by either providing arms to the opposition or sending american boots on the ground. what i like to see is a concerted effort on the part of the united states, leading the effort to really broker a political settlement, a diplomatic solution. there is no military solution in syria. syria is not libya. even though i would argue that the rebels will ultimately win there particular struggle in the long term, we don't know. one or two years. at the end of it, there will be no syria as we know it. there will be no state as we know it. and more important from my point of view, there will be the social fabric, the diversity would most likely be destroyed. not to mention the that i willover effects from syria into will he be none and jordan into iraq and even into turkey. >> wow! a dramatic scene that you pai

this yesterday. does syria's arsenal and weapons get in the hands of not just the opposition but hezbollah, hamas, other jihadist groups in this region? the word security takes on many different shapes, many different wrinkles. when you're meeting with the palestinian president it's normally about negotiations and security cooperations with israel. because of everything going on in this part of the world, it's a lot more complicated. and syria, including worries about the use of chemical weapons, you bet that would be a fkter as well. >> we're looking at live pictures of president obama and mahmoud abbas. we saw the president shaking hands and reviewing the palestinian troops. >> similarities from yesterday, this is a red carpet reception, pomp and circumstance as well but protest that is will be greeting him as he lands there and goes through the region. >> jessica yellin is in ramallah, covering this trip. you've been talking to the white house for days now about this what is it that the white house wants to achieve with president ab abbas today? >> reporter: hi, john. hi, zoraida. they're hope
